GVRD and contractors were meeting at Sogorea Te today. They refused to listen to our concerns, refused to identify themselves or their employers and tried to harass and intimidate SSP&RIT members and their supporters. The police were called by Steve Pesley of GVRD, but no arrests or interference resulted. News reporters were on hand and interviewed Wounded Knee.
The contractors intend to fence the ancestors in to protect their equipment. The also intend to employ roving security at the site. We expect that this fence will go up on the 13th or 14th of April.
The contractor is Carone & Company, Inc. Make a call and voice your objections to them:
5009 Forni Drive, Concord, CA 94520
